In a recently published YouTube video, veteran Autogefühl reviewer Thomas Majchrzak showcases and reviews Porsche’s newest all-electric cars — the Taycan GTS and Taycan GTS Sport Turismo, an electric wagon version of the car.
The Taycan GTS features Porsche’s signature aerodynamic, performance sedan design language, complete with a fair amount of built-in storage space thanks to the lack of a bulky Internal Combustion Engine.
The Taycan GTS Sport Turismo, on the other hand, is sporty in the front and family wagon in the back with Porsche’s low-bodied station wagon-like Sport Turismo design. Thanks to its larger caboose, the Sport Turismo model features even more cargo space. Interestingly, it will be the only Sport Turismo variant of any of Porsche’s cars to be sold in U.S. markets.
For charging, both Taycan GTS models support 11 kW AC and optional 22 kW AC charging, along with up to 270 kW DC charging for an advertised charging speed of 0-80% in 22 minutes under ideal conditions.
Under the hood is an 84 kWh battery rated at a range of 250 miles (400 km) — won’t hold a candle to the Tesla Model S Long Range’s 405 miles (651 km) of range, but nothing to scoff at either.
As for power output, the Taycan GTS delivers 600 horsepower and 850 units of torque at peak. The all-electric Porsche can go 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), and also boasts impressive regenerative braking.
The interior, as you’d expect from Porsche, is premium and inviting, with suede seats and trim, and a standard glass roof that can be upgraded to an electrochromic roof with modifiable opacity.
The Porsche Taycan GTS starts at $132,750 USD, with the GTS Sport Turismo starting at $134,650 USD. Both cars are available to order now, with deliveries expected to begin in the second quarter of 2022.
Porsche reported “huge” demand for available Taycan models in September, with many customers seeing wait times of up to six months. Earlier this year, the company also announced a whopping 65 new exterior colors for the 2022 Porsche Taycan.
